Keynotes

  • To take advantage of YouTube’s new feature, you can skip to the most popular sections of videos.
  • On the YouTube web player and mobile apps, clips that have been viewed the most will now be highlighted.
  • Before, only YouTube Premium subscribers could use this function. Now, everyone can use it.
  • You can learn about a video’s most popular sections by looking at a graph that shows up in front of the video’s progress meter.
  • Customers with premium subscriptions will soon be able to “see exactly where you want” in videos, a feature that was previously unavailable to the general public (though YouTube is not offering any more details on how that works right now).

With YouTube’s new feature, you may skip to the areas of videos that have been replayed the most.

The “most repeated” portions of videos will now be highlighted on the YouTube web player and mobile apps. As an experiment for YouTube Premium subscribers, the feature is now open to all users.

From a graph that appears in front of a video’s progress metre, you may discover the video’s most popular sections. For example, if a video has a large spike in views, that means the video has been seen a lot. It’s easy to identify and observe those instances using the graph. It’s a cinch! Still, it’s interesting to think about how this could distract viewers or even guide producers’ work by giving them another way to figure out exactly what viewers want to see (something that some YouTubers say puts too much pressure on them).

The look and feel of the feature on mobile devices running the YouTube app   For the first time ever, the firm is announcing a new feature as part of a larger package of changes, some of which are new and some of which are not. Users may now “loop” sections of videos, which were previously unannounced (more on that here), and a planned test for Premium customers will allow them to “see exactly where you want” in a video (though YouTube is not offering any more details on how that works right now).

Moreover, creators can use these tools in conjunction with YouTube’s “chapters” feature, which lets them divide up videos into smaller sections.

It’s intriguing to see YouTube try to have its cake and eat it too, now that it’s established itself as a long-form video hub on the web. Long-form video is still there, but you can now cut it up into smaller, more manageable chunks, or focus on the most interesting parts!

As a YouTube creator or a user of YouTube, let’s us know how this benefits your using of the platform or what you think of the integration in the comment section below.
